The Simpsons Collector Sector's complete coverage of San Diego Comic Con 2002 continues... In addition to phalen180's in-depth photo coverage of Playmates Toys' booth, we've also been in constant contact with Playmates representatives attending the convention. Besides confirming the accessories for Wave 10, Playset Assortment F and Celebrity Series 3, we've also learned :
-There is a strong possibility of a Be Sharps playset being produced, but no word yet on who might carry it.
-The KBBL Logo on Bill's shirt may or may not eventually be painted on, it's too soon in the production process to know.
-Moe's Tavern is being shown with a new sculpt wall phone and a beer mug for accessories at the Comic Con, however it is too soon in the production process to confirm the accessories.
-The Duffman shown with Moe's is a clay mock-up (the reason for his "shiny" appearance). The actual Moe's playset is also just a custom made prototype that the release will be based on.
-Moe's Tavern will not be a deluxe playset, it will work with the standard 30 to 40 figures with the 3 pegs. For all intents and purposes it is a regular playset.
-Target is apparently the "test retailer" for the 9-inch Faces of Springfield line. Right now the second wave is also scheduled to be a Target exclusive, but that may change if sales are strong. In any case, don't expect to see a release of these beyond Target Stores until at least 2003.
Stay tuned for our continuing coverage...
